After lifting the Under-20 World Cup title, England will be hoping to give themselves more hope for the future with success in the European Under-21 Championship.
Having made it to Poland without a single defeat to their name in qualifying, Aidy Boothroyd’s team are available at 9/1 (10.00) with dabblebet to complete a double summer success by lifting this trophy for the third time in their history.
Drawn in a relatively undaunting group alongside Sweden 14/1 (15.00), Poland 14/1 (15.00) and Slovakia 18/1 (19.00), the Young Lions will fancy their chances of making an impact at a tournament they have not won since 1984.
However, as the only side to qualify with a perfect record after winning 10 games from 10, a Germany team at 10/3 (4.33) boasting a number of players with senior international experience are sure to take some stopping.
One team definitely capable of standing in their way is Spain, who are also on offer at 10/3 (4.33) to take back a title they have claimed twice in the last three editions. With a supremely talented midfield featuring Saul Niguez, Denis Suarez and Marco Asensio, Albert Celades’ side are certainly a force to be reckoned with.
With AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma playing behind a defence featuring senior international Daniele Rugani and his future Juventus team-mate Mattia Caldara, Italy 7/1 (8.00) also should not be ignored in a competition they have won more than any other nation.
The Azzurrini must first make it through a group that includes Denmark 18/1 (19.00) , the Czech Republic 18/1 (19.00), and that star-studded German outfit if they are to have any chance of securing a sixth European title 13 years after the last.
